If you have the right drivers for your video card, you should be able to select the video-in as a video source in any webcam or video capture program.

I think it depends on the camera and the drivers you have. I would not think a digicam would work very well as a live web cam, but may work for taking pics in intervals and having software refresh them on a web site.

Most of them, including my Z10, work with the LCD display image giving you a ~qvga image. Just plug in thecamera andput it on record.

I had Fuji S5000 and it supported webcam right out of the package. But, why not buy a cheap webcam instead of using your $200+ digicam as a webcam?
